Oh what a career Michael Vick could have had if he had of stayed out of trouble. Vick led the Falcons to an NFC title game in 2004 but his best season came in 2002. Vick threw for a career high 2,936 yards and 16 touchdowns to go with just seven interceptions. Vick also compiled 777 yards rushing and eight rushing touchdowns to run his season total to 24 touchdowns.
Vick ultimately ruined his reputation and legacy after being convicted for dog fighting in which he spent time in prison. Vick left the Falcons in shambles and set the franchise back a couple of years. Vick still ranks fourth in Falcons’ history in passing yards with 11,505 yards. If Vick was able to stay out of trouble, he very well could have been the best QB in franchise history and the best running QB of all time.
